  1. I had mgbs about 10 years ago I have been struggling weight wise up, down and can not seem to maintain my weight to what I was the first few years. I don’t really eat food but when I for it’s sweets. I would like to get back on the E-mail list and see if I can read/chat with other so I can get back to what I feel is a good healthy size for me.
    thank you in advance.

    1. Hi Sharon – I have the same challenges – there are days when all my system will tolerate is potato chips – salad is not my friend. Too much protein makes me constipated and I end up with constipation.

      I’ve gone back to chicken broth etc. but it’s hard to maintain.

  2. If anyone has had a revision to keep the weight off would you please contact me or 270.210.9994 I have fear of gaining all my weight back… I have already put on over 50 pounds over the last 15 years since MGB

    1. Think twice about getting the revision. I had the gastric surgery 15 years ago and then 5 years later had the revision. I have kept my weight off and have been pleased with the surgery. However, I am now severly malnourished and suffer from various ailments caused by the surgery. I went blind 3 years ago from lack of vitamin A and had to go to Johns Hopkins to get a proper diagnosis. I now have a protein problem that has left me very ill and unable to function well. I am trying to get that under control now. My eyesight is now going bad again as the vitamin A shots I have been getting are no longer working. I am now going to get my surgery reversed or get my stomach “reattached” if it is possible. I have always been very healthy and these past few years have been a struggle for me. I’m trying to see “specialists” all over the country (luckily I have good insurance), but I have come to the conclusion that it is no longer worth the struggle. I have been told the cause of my problem is the revision. Another lady had her stomach reattached due to malnutrition so I’m not alone with this problem. I wish you luck with your decision.

  4. Hello,
    I reached out to Dr. Rutledge via email the other day, but have not received a response. What is your preferred method of contact? Would a phone call be preferable to email? Thanks,

    1. You can reach me by email or phone. However, I don’t know how to send you my phone number without it going out on the web. As you can tell, I’m not too tech savvy. I’m in VA now seeking medical help for my vitamin deficiencies. Life is good, but it ain’t easy!!

  5. I heard from another surgeon that Rutledge is in India doing his procedure. I have waited for months and months for a response from Rutledge and Im still waiting… Dr Peraglie 407.922.3424 in Florida or Dr. Hargroder 417.206.2900 in Missouri that also do MGB have a lot of answers to our questions about our MGB surgery. I have spoken to both and they are real good people.

    1. Thanks for the heads up, David. Honestly, though, after reading Peggy’s story, I am having serious doubts about going forward.

  6. I was all for a revision, but after research, I feel like it’s not for me I have lost about 15 pounds now and I’m feeling like I can do this. I think I got lazy not having to watch what I eat for 15 years. I’m back on track now. Let me know if I can help.
